When installing a crankshaft...
OK I'm about to install my first crank, got if a few weeks ago with new seals and the threebond 1211. Now I was reading in the manual about some shims of some sort that go back in the same place they came out (clymer is vague sometimes). Problem is I didn't take it apart so I have no idea where the shims are or where they go. Is there a technique for making sure the rods are centered in the cylinders.. is there anything I need to be concerned with or do I just dab a bit of threebond on the cases, stick the crank in and torque the bolts via the sequence working up to the full torque amount.?

What he said ^^^^. Also turn the crank by hand frequently to see if there's binding as you torque the bolts as a preventative measure. And a very small bead of 1211 is plenty,as most will squeeze out after tightening it down.

OK sounds fairly straight forward. Thanks guys, I'll get started on it tonight.
